Do you know where the long-
est bridge in the United States is
located? It is the new (built in
1963) concrete trestle bridge
across Lake Pontchartrain at
Sidell, La. It is 28,500 feet long.
How does that compare with
other bridges in the U.S. ? There
is one in Seattle, Washington,
on floating pontoons which is
7,998 feet long.
And the great Golden Gate
bridge is a mere 4,200 feet.
